• On Their Way Rejoicing: The History And Role Of The Bible In Africa

    The author has written on a very important subject, one which is of greater significance today than may be generally recognized. He writes as a Westerner conscious that there are dimensions to the story of the Bible in Africa which can only be effectively told by Africans themselves. Nevertheless he writes with deep passion about Africa; in our time that is not very common.

    An African proverb compares the wise man with a river: as the level of the river rises so the man grows in knowledge. In Ype Schaaf’s compelling account the impact of the Bible on a whole continent is like a river in flood.

    My Seditious Heart

    Bookended by her two award-winning novels, The God of Small Things (1997) and The Ministry of Utmost Happiness (2017), My Seditious Heart collects the work of a two-decade period when Arundhati Roy devoted herself to the political essay as a way of opening up space for justice, rights, and freedoms in an increasingly hostile world. Taken together, the essays speak in a voice of unique spirit, marked by compassion, clarity, and courage. Radical and superbly readable, they speak always in defense of the collective, of the individual and of the land, in the face of the destructive logic of financial, social, religious, military, and governmental elites
